Continuous Process

We collaborate with our customers, suppliers and research partners to anticipate new innovation ideas and technological advancements in order to produce a first-class product.

Our NPD Team is strong and dynamic, and is continually adapting, refining and developing products in order to have a strong presence in an increasingly demanding market.

Innovation is a complex and continuous process that demands individual and organisational creativity.  At Smith Anderson, we are proud of our ability to manage this process and effectively use our experience to produce quality products.

Extensive Planning

Design is an essential ingredient to the success or failure of a product. We believe that through our extensive planning, testing and experimentation we can successfully produce a wide variety of packaging products and have the proficiency to cater to individual and specific market needs.

The production of handmade samples is an extremely important asset provided by the NPD team. It allows our customers to receive a physical prototype of the product that they require, so it can be assessed using their own evaluation and testing methods.

Accreditation & Certification

Our accreditation to ISO 14001, FSC and PEFC propel solutions to reduce food waste is important to us and where possible, we lightweight our use of product materials and minimise the tertiary packaging, confirming we are cognisant of our carbon footprint. We fully support our customers in their drive to achieve their own environmental and cost targets.

Our packaging is food safe, natural, additive free, FSC chain of custody accredited and certified to EN13432. (Fully biodegradable and compostable).

In addition to approval BfRXXXV1/2 for cooking purposes, packaging is fully certified by ISEGA to withstand elevated cooking temperatures.
